Please check the thread - this is about alsa 1.0.18a failing on some
hardware which the packages at ATrpms fix. So it's neither a waste,
nor confusion, but supporting the userbase (this thread has become
waste and confusion).

Actually a lot of the current snapshot from alsa has been driven by
Paulo who also packaged it up for immediate consuming. And yes, it's
all in upstream already, but until 1.0.18b/1.0.19 is released and that
pushed to the kernel or the Fedora kernel maintainer backporting the
bits it to the next packaged kernel, some people with a nice sound
system will only listen to the Sound of Silence.

All that Paulo was trying to do here is help users with a problem at
hand, be that with a package we created or other advice to get the
sound codec going. I really doubt that he will be that enthousiastic
to help people out on this list when the side reactions are like that.
